Daisy Ridley Shares Video Of Her Lightsaber Training For 'Episode VIII'

By: Benjamin Hart

With production for Star Wars: Episode VIII now in full swing, it's exciting to get glimpses at the process through various means. One of the best windows into the production has been through the social media accounts of various members of the cast and crew, and one of the most active people behind the scenes has been Daisy Ridley. Daisy, who portrays former scavenger and soon-to-be-Jedi Rey, has made a point to very often share videos on social media of her intense training exercises. Her latest video features herself demonstrating her Wushu skills with a stick the size of a Lightsaber. Ridley credits stuntman Liang Yang for training her, and he makes a cameo at the end of the video. Yang is best know for portraying FN-2199 ("Traitor!") in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You can check out the full video below:
